7:08 am
committee, russia sbeerinterfer the election to help him in. mr. trump refusing to believe multiple agents who have pointed the finger at russia. >> they have no idea if it's russia or china or somebody t. could be somebody sitting in a bed someplace. >> reporter: that echoed by his incoming chief of staff. >> does the president-elect believe that russia was trying to muddy up and get involved in the election in 2016? >> number one, you don't know it. i don't know it. there's been no conclusive or specific report to sail otherwise. >> reporter: but not all republicans are lining up four top senators calling ar finish investigation into the potential russian hacks, all of that highlighting an unprecedent rift. mr. trump even questioning the
7:09 am
need for daily briefings that presidents receive. he's only had a handful. >> i don't have to be told. i'm a smart person. i don't have to be toll the same thing and the same words every single day for the next eight years. >> this all comes as mr. trump is on defense over his likely pick of secretary of state rex tillerson, the ceo of exxon mobil. who has no diplomat experience but has executed business deals around the world and has extensive ties to russia. >> he's a world class player. >> tillerson could face a tough confirmation fight. marco rubio treating being a friend of putin. >> is it a matter of concern? certainly it should be a matter of concern. >> also looming large, questions about how mr. trump will manage his vast business empire once in office. >> i'm going to have nothing to do with it. i'll be honest with you. i don't care about it anymore.
7:10 am
>> this week mr. trump will hold his first press conference since being elected. meanwhile in a tweet this morning trump again took aim at the intelligence community writing can you imagine in the election results were the opposite and we tried to play the russia/cia card. it would be called conspiracy theory. matt. >> kristin, thanks very much. kellyanne conway served as mr. trump's campaign manager and is now a senior advisor for the transition. good morning. >> thank you, matt. >> does mr. trump think the intelligence community and cia in particular is lying about the russian's impact on the election? >> no, he's not said that. in fact, mr. trump has said that he respects the intelligence community. in a specific case since being discussed recently, though, we don't have credible and compete evidence that tlehere's a direc nexus between anything russia did and hillary clinton's loss in the election. >> isn't it enough to know that the russians, according to many
7:11 am
reports, that the intelligence agencies agreed that the russians deployed hackers to have some involvement, some impact on the election, whether it resulted in a victory or loss for hillary clinton? >> first of all, we don't believe that -- we don't want intelligence interfering in our politics, but we also don't want politics interfering with our intelligence. that's what's happening here. if you look at some articles, they want the reader, the viewer to make that direct connection between interference and the election results. of course, these are leaked unsourced, nonsources if you will. that's what hearings for. >> when you talked about leaked and unsourced, mr. trump had no problem during the campaign using that same leaked unsourced information, negative information about the clinton campaign against hillary clinton. now he doesn't even seam to care where it's coming from. >> he cares very much about our intelligence community and any information they may divulge. that's number one.
7:12 am
number two, you're seeing these fbi and cia don't agree. that's very clear. and in the case of those e-mails, we saw right in front of us what they said. look, i do think there's something going on here, whether it's the recount, it's jim comey's fault, it's russian interference, a group of people we never met. >> they may be mutually exclusive. getting back to what you just said about he cares very deeply about intelligence, he said it can be russia, could be china, could be some guy in new jersey that doesn't seem to give me the sense that he understands the gravity of a foreign entity interfering in an election. >> he does. he also understands the gravity and the consequences of not having a great relationship with russia. we just simply don't. that's why some of his secretary of state picks are people already involved in russia. the ultimate decision of course rests with president-elect trump and he will make that announcement perhaps this week.
7:13 am
one of the leading candidates, rex tillerson is somebody who has dealt in russia over a number of years. overse oversees 70,000 employees. >> but it adds to the perspective, and i'm glad you bring mr. tillerson up, because on top of the questions about the russian's impact on the election and mr. trump's own words in the past about vladimir putin and liking his praise and now we have rex tillerson who has close ties to moscow, was against sanctions against russia, is he perhaps the right guy but at the wrong time, kellyanne? >> it's the right job description. we want somebody who's already accustomed to negotiates. we want somebody who because he is an oil man has been in ye men and china and russia. it's not like vladimir putin and rex tillerson are pounding down at the local bars. they're not intimate friends but they deal with each other through business interests.
7:14 am
i think anybody who is in president trump's cabinet, particularly the secretary of state, that person will be advancing the interests of the u.s. everywhere and that person will be advancing the agenda of president-elect trump. >> when will we know? >> probably this week. he may in fact announce that pick this week. everybody should appreciate how much time and deliberation and reflection he has spent on this very important pick is who will be the secretary of state. the world is a dangerous place. we don't have great relationships every wrch. picking some be who will advance interests, very important not to be rushed. >> thanks very having me, matt. >> matt, thanks so much. the man who shot new orleans saints player will smith has been convicted of manslaughter. found car dell hayes guilty in the shooting that killed will smith and wounded the player's wife.
7:15 am
former teammate says he knows there's still hard times ahead for smith's family. >> just because there was a guilty and a not guilty verdict, that doesn't mean that everything starts over now. she'll still get up in the morning and her husband is not there. the kids will get up in the morning and their father is not there. >> hayes could face up to 40 years in prison. his sentencing is scheduled for february 17th. private vig vigil was held overnight in orlando since the deadliest shooting in history. a moment of silence was observed at the exact time that the shooting started. showing the before, during and after rampage. cameras show matin parking his car under the canopy. police arrive minutes later after the first shots. some patrons run for their lives. it lasted three hours before he

7:31 am
the source of the fire remains unclear but they believe it may be tied to an elect crical plan. the man who fatally shot former nfl player will smith has been convicted of manslaughter. defense had argued the 29-year-old cardel hayes fired in self-defense. he faces up to 4 0 years in prison at his sentencing. christmas is less than two weeks away. a lot of parents are still scrambling to find one of the year's hottest toys. they're called hatchimals. one reason you could be struggling, some shoppers are buying them up, then reselling them online for twice, three times, even ten times the price. nbc's gadi schwartz is in l.a. with more. >> reporter: good morning. here in the studio we actually have two of these hatchimals. they don't look like very much, but inside of this egg is one of the most complicated stuffed animals you've ever seen. they are almost impossible to get in stores. we found these online after buying them from someone who is
7:32 am
selling them for almost three times what they're worth. remember tickle me elmo? or the furby craze? remember all these beanie baseballs? that's nothing compared to this year's hatchimals which is a souped-up version of all those toys with an egg that hatches. most retail stores sell them for about $60, but for months people have been predicting a low supply will lead to a huge shortage. a la arnold schwarzenegger's search in "jingle all the way." some might see it as an opportunity to cash in. some people online thought author sara gruen was doing a few weeks ago. >> i had absolutely no idea that emotions would run so high. i had no idea how desperate people were to get these for their children. >> reporter: the popular author of the book "water for
7:33 am
elephants" recently bought $23,000 worth to sell on her own for nearly $189, nearly 1$30 more than retail. one person saying my kid's going to be crushed christmas morning when she doesn't get one. when we spoke to her, the author says her motivation was completely different. >> i thought those look cool. we bought some for the grandchildren off ebay. somehow i decided that they were going to be an "it" toy. >> reporter: after buying them, she later thought she could use hatchimals to help fund legal fees for a man she believes has been wrongly convicted and sentenced to life without parole hoping the money frts toy could help offset the bills needed to get the man's case in front of the supreme court. >> just thought that probably i could raise something. i sold out in four days and i think i made an average of $30 per hatchimal. >> reporter: but frustration over a lack of the popular toy has spread all over the nation.
7:34 am
i'm here in l.a. hatchimals are also sold out at most stores but online if you search you find one -- here's one for $140. we are going to take a drive and see if we get lucky. after a few text messages and a home address, what we found wasn't a hatchimal hoarder. it was a mother who was selling three hatchimals after her brother waited for hours before dawn, all so they could make some extra money for the holidays. >> since we are able to sell these, we're able to buy the boy something else. like he wants a bicycle and then he wants a game. so we're able to buy that. and we're able to pay for the bills at the house. so that helps. >> that family very grateful for these hatchimals, even if they ended up here with us. suppliers are trying to get more of these hatchimals to stores before christmas but for now, the craze shows no signs of slowing down. back to you guys. >> goadi, what are you doing wih those? >> i have two of them but i have five nieces and nephews.

8:17 am
first, the polar vortex allowing arctic air to surge into north america. chicago you'll see temperatures by friday, overnight lows, 6 below. 32 in nashville. only 16 in st. louis on thursday. new york city, 12 degrees on friday. with that cold air in place, keep that in mind as this low pressure makes its way across the country starting on thursday. snow from boise, salt lake, billings, bismarck. then moving into friday it spreads further east. minneapolis, omaha, chicago, detroit, cincinnati. then as we move on in to saturday, and sunday, the system makes its way to the east coast. buffalo, washington, new york city, boston all looking at snow. how much? how long? we'll have details as the week wears on. that's what's going on around the coun good morning. i'm meteorologist kari hall. here is a live look outside in san francisco and embarcadero starting to get a little bit more busy but mostly cloudy skies in some spots. we are getting some sunshine peeking through as well. it's 50 there, heading to 66.
8:18 am
still this train of river -- train of moisture starting to move into the bay area. that will continue through the day but the next batch of rain arriving by tomorrow afternoon. today is our chance to dry out. temperatures in the upper 40s and low 50s as you head out the door. >> that's your late esst weathe. now to something new we are calling "joy to the world." this week, "today" nutritionist joy bauer is helping you navigate all those holiday treats that can go right to your waistline. up first, a healthier spin on a classic that feeds a crowd. >> i'm lightening up a holiday family favorite -- cheesy delicious lasagna. and there's no noodle boiling needed, thanks to a trick i learned from my mom. christmas lasagna. brown turkey and marinara sauce in water. mix ricotta cheese. add egg white, garlic powder, pepper, basil and oregano. add spinach and combine. cover bottom of the pan with
8:19 am
meat sauce, half spinach mixture, more noodles. layer again. to cook noodles, pour water around the edges. tip -- spray the foil and the cheese won't stick. bake covered. bake uncovered. decorate and serve. typical lasagna is about 960 calories per serving. mine -- just 260. that's a savings of 700 calories. happy holidays! mwua! >> by the way, that's crazy how many calories you've cut. >> it is delicious! we're going to feast on it right afterwards. i also want to mention that as easy as it is to make the tree, if you from init horizontally you can make the hanukah menorah as well. >> look at you always thinking! going to holiday parties. three things we should do. >> first thing, follow the rule of one. what that means is when you get there, enjoy one of each
8:20 am
delicious looking hors d'oeuvre, fill one plate of food with whatever you want and one alcoholic beverage and one dessert or a sliver of two. >> you blacked out when you said one. >> everything's negotiable. you also want to focus on the people. catch up with friends and family, versus focusing on food and pigging out. lastly, sneak in extra exercise because the more you burn the more wiggle room you have for all the holiday stuff. >> the three don'ts. >> first thing is -- don't slurp up those seasonable cocktails because they are calorie bombs. count them as dessert. >> eggnog is one of those. >> we'll talk about eggnog in a minute. you also don't want to waste your calories on the year-round regular stuff like chocolate chip cookies and chips. instead, save is for things like aunt grace's killer fudge. those things are worth it. the last is you don't want to eat your way through the month. we have to keep reminding ourselves it is called a holiday, and not holi-week.
8:21 am
>> look at appetizers now. this is bruschetta. three pieces versus three mini quiches. what are you going to pick? >> i would pick the bruschetta because it doesn't have all the crust and stuff. >> you are exactly right. bruschetta wins. this is the lighter choice. it is only 20 calories a piece. 60 calories for all three. and, plus you get the vitamin c packed tomatoes. they also have lycopene which helps reduce the risk of certain cancers. the quiche, 1 00 calories each. a little more, actually. 310 for three. >> sometimes when you stroll around a party, you take one off a place, you're not thinking. be conscience of it. >> if you're faced with holiday rum punch, eggnog or a gingerbread martini, which do you think is the lightest?
8:22 am
>> i would pick the gingerbread? >> the holiday punch is the lightest at 240 calories. next in line is the eggnog for 350. the gingerbread martini is like a milkshake. it's 500 calories. >> that's horrifying. >> 500. here's a great trick for people that love eggnog. if you fill it up half-way, then you top it off with any kind of milk, ideally skim milk or maybe like an unsweetened almond milk, you dilute is a little bit -- >> that's not really eggnog. >> main courses. >> are you going to pick the glazed baked ham or are you going to pick the prime rib? >> i'd do the ham. it looks thinner. >> you are exactly right. ham is actually pretty darn lean. five ounces is 240 calories. prime rib is the most marbled, fattiest meat. this is over 600 calories. >> let's go to sides. >> are you going to pick the
8:23 am
creamed spinach or mashed potatoes and gravy? >> i would just pick the mashed potatoes for many reasons. >> although they both have a lot of fatty mix-ins, mashed potatoes, that's made with whole milk and butter and of course cream in the cream spinach. spinach is always going to prevail because it is a superstar vegetable and it is also so much lighter compared to spuds. 250 for this one, 350 for that one. >> i'm so depressed. all right. >> the last. weet trea sweet treats. >> two holiday cookies versus two pieces of peppermint bark. >> i love peppermint bark. i'm going with this one. >> you would be right. each cookie is about 100 calories. two for 200 is a pretty good bargain. peppermint bark is load oed. >> don't tell me! don't tell me! i want to eat a bite. then you tell me.
8:24 am
>> 4 run calories for the two pieces. can you imagine? one piece is double what one cookie is. sometimes it is worth it. i get it. >> all right. joy, all great. all great tips. you can get joy's lasagna recipe at 2 dat come. tomorrow joy is going to show you how to undo the damage if you do overdo it. >> i got jimmy buffett and the guys getting us in the holiday spirit. take it away, guys. ♪ ♪
